It all really depends on the brand. I've dealt with various ones of them since I edit music and need to wear them for hours at a time.
I own a pair of Sony MDR 7506 (those are basically the industry standard) and they were extremely comfortable. The sounds is pretty balanced too, although I would've perhaps appreciated slightly more lows, but I digress. If anyone is looking for quality headphones after dealing with ones that hurt their ears, I highly suggest checking out those. Around $80 as of now I believe.
If you want to go a step up, check out Beyerdynamic DT 770 PRO. Also super comfortable and has better sound than Sony's headphones in my opinion. However, the cable sucks and may give out in a year or two at the connection. Around $130, 150 I think.
The ones I use now are V-MODA Crossfade M-100. They are the best headphones I've ever owned. Fantastic sound and built like a rock, albeit an expensive rock. They may hurt if you wear them for hours without taking them off, but that may be just me personally. Customer service is also insanely awesome. The warranty lasts a year... and if they break for any reason after that in your lifetime you can buy another pair for half price. They are currently around $250. I like wired headphones, but if you want wireless, they cost more.
Whatever you do, stay away from what I believe was Able Planet headphones. They hurt like hell. Worst experience ever. I had a pair of them once and will never use them again.
Bose is also good for comfort (though I think a lot of the price is overrated brand name). Beats headphones are comfortable (except the sounds is AWFUL-- so unbalanced, and they are way overrated in terms of price). Sony is generally comfortable. I haven't had much experience with AKG but I've heard good things about comfort from them too.
Why did I list various headphones and stuff?
Well, the point I was trying to make (besides offering some things to look buying) was that each headphone is unique in it's design. Price doesn't necessarily mean comfort, and not all headphones hurt. It's a gamble, but can be mitigated with research and/or going into stores and trying stuff on.
Oh, on a side note, I'd like to express my disdain for beats headphones once again lol. The only reason someone should buy them is if they are wanting a fashion statement, or if they just want overwhelming amounts of bass in their music.2
